on "downton abbey," which concludes its third season later tonight on pbs. she has won two oscars, three emmys, and a tony award, all wrapped around a long and illustrious career on the british stage. at age 78, she is at the peak of her fame, much in demand, and quite bankable. last spring's "the best exotic marigold hotel" was a surprise hit, and there is a new film out, "quartet," directed by dustin hoffman. she doesn't have much time or interest in giving interviews, which she's compared to testifying in court. they're a rarity. we were fortunate enough to get one. you seem to have no interest in celebrity and fame. >> maggie smith: absolutely none. i mean, why would i? >> kroft: do you accept the fact that you're a star? >> smith: if you say so. yes. i do... i don't feel any different to the way i felt before, and i'm not quite sure what it means. i am familiar to people now, which is what i was not before. that is entirely due to the television set. >> kroft: she's talking about "downton abbey," the highbrow british soap opera that follows the intrigues of an aristocratic family and thei

pbs station from viewers like you. attenborough: for me, as for countless others, the natural world is the greatest of all treasures, and yet in my lifetime we have damaged it more severely than in the whole of the rest of human history. indeed, significant parts of it now are in danger of total destruction. when i first came to borneo in 1956, the rainforest stretched unbroken on either side of the river for hundreds of miles. today, it's very different. just beyond the trees lining the river bank, there is nothing but oil palm plantations, and the forest and all the rich variety of animals and plants that it had once contained, has been destroyed. and yet, as we have transformed the natural world, so our attitudes towards it have changed fundamentally. again and again, i have seen the impoverishment and desolation caused by the way we have ruthlessly taken what we want from the land, no matter what the cost. but i have also seen how the natural world, given just the slightest chance, can manage to survive. and i have met the far-sighted and dedicated conservationists who've labore
